MEMS scanning mirror claims LiDAR breakthrough
Omnitron Sensors just validated its process for a fast, rugged, and low-cost MEMS scanning mirror. The new optical subsystem meets the demanding requirements of the LiDARs used in ADAS, drones, and robotics applications. Based on a long history of sensor design and project expertise, Omnitron identified that by changing process technology and packaging techniques, resulting improvements spanned size, cost, robustness, reliability, manufacturability, and time to market. Omnitron’s MEMS mirror, for example, produces a 2-3x larger field of view (FoV) than competitive MEMS mirrors used in long-range LiDARs.
